STAFF PICK "Great to have this back in stock to time in nicely with Bill's new poetry book - a fascinating double album of Direenisms!" Matthew Crawley

Sold out more or less everywhere, these final copies of the 2LP (edition / 500) vinyl version of the official soundtrack to Simon Ogston's excellent Bill Direen documentary "A Memory of Others" is back in stock, with limited numbers.

(on the filmmaker) - Simon Ogston, director, grew up in Christchurch with the music of Flying Nun on his turntable. In 2017, he realised a long-held ambition to capture Bill Direen and his musical friends on film. Archival material, avant-garde theatre and video clips punctuate the story line, as the crew accompanies Bill on a 2000 km tour of his native skinny islands. Watch out for places referenced in the lyrics, some spectacular landscape, Christchurch ruins and reconstruction post-Quake, or the beautiful Whanganui River now given the 
same status as a human being in New Zealand law. The film offers a raft of extraordinary guest appearances from members of Vacuum (1978) through to ongoing Ferocious. A soft highlight is a Gamelan orchestra of elementary school kids backing Bill. Not forgetting the analytics, Ogston slips in sporadic interviews by cognoscenti of New Zealand Underground, poetics and early punk tendencies.

Comes w/ downloadable full-length film.
